On Sunday, the final morning of the all-things Disney convention, the D23 Expo, video games took the spotlight. And then “Star Wars” dominated it.

Actors Daisy Ridley and John Boyega from “Star Wars: Episode 7 — The Force Awakens” were the special guests during a 90-minute presentation on Disney’s upcoming video game slate. Ridley and Boyega were on hand to introduce figures from the family-focused “Disney Infinity 3.0” that are made in the likeness of their “Star Wars” characters, Rey and Finn, respectively. 

Boyega learned that his character Finn has the “most powerful weapon in the game,” which was alluded to by John Blackburn, senior vice president/general manager of “Disney Infinity.” Ridley, meanwhile, was simply pleased her character was able to kick some butt in the title.


“I’m not what you call a classic gamer,” she told an audience of about 5,000, “but I just played it backstage and even I was like, ‘Oh my God, I can do it.'”
